    Faggots and Pease Pudding,Potato Fritters etc.When I went to the Lane it was always a Pint of Prawns from Tubby Isaacs,then take them home and have with a Beer.I remember East Ham Covered Market-used to be a good Leather Stall there(at the end)and a good little Caff,just inside the entrance.The Denmark Arms,The Central,The Green Man,The Rushkin Arms(started off as a Pilgrimage,because the Small Faces used to practice there-when Jimmy Winstone was in the Band).It became a Heavy Metal Pub.Iron Maiden were Regulars there.Earl Of Wakefield and Burnell Arms,have drunk in them.The Cranbrook was where we had a Pint before the Palais.

    Vidal Sassoon R.I.P.One of the People who put London on the Fashion Map(in the `60s)along with Mary Quant and John Stephens etc.In the mid 60s I had a Girlfriend who would save her Wages,and go "Up West" and have her Hair done-in Sassoons`Salon.In those days we had Pioneers,now I am not so sure!!!

    RIP indeed. No more pioneers. Mary Quant called Vidal Sassoon the Chanel of hairdressing and very apt too. The belief in a pared back look, less is more. Very much the skinhead motif.

    We bought what we could afford in the days when we started out. I get a bit cheesed off with the retro style people who pick up on the slightest out of place item such as a pair of ordinary brogues instead of the royals where the stitching does not arch down to the sole.
    It's nice to see so many people wearing Dr. Marten boots these days but they all look like amatuers when along comes the skinhead with his polished boots. One thing I always did have was my docs and I used to polish them like my life depended upon them. Cheers!

    They may not have influenced 60s skinheads but they certainly influenced them in the 70s. I never heared of a skinhead liking reggae music
